C19 pigsties. The Home Farm belonged to Nanteos and the sties were probably added in the mid C19, and have similarities to the more modest example at nearby Glascrug. The property was sold in 1979 and the farm complex altered, though the sties remained.
Single-storey 8-sty pigsty in uncoursed rubble stone with narrow gabled slate roof, deeper to rear. Front has 8 low arch-headed openings with rough stone voussoirs and boarded timber doors on iron hinges. Plain timber eaves board, possibly renewed in later C20.
Included as an unusually large estate pigsty.
